Our Featured Experiences

Have a look at some of the posts from our 99 Berlin Experiences series.
Insights into the must-do and must-see things in Berlin that have come to define the city. 

Featured Experience No. 1

There is no more meaningful way of entering Berlin’s historic Mitte district than to walk through the central reservation of the Brandenburg Gate. This glorious neo-classical monument, erected by the Prussian Hohenzollern monarchy, would serve as the royal entrance into the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia. 

Featured Experience No. 7

No other building but the Reichstag better stands to represent the troubled evolution of the German nation – and the distinctly introspective current political climate of the country. Due to the building’s position in the city,  the roof and cupola of the structure also offer an exceptional panorama of Berlin’s skyline.

Featured Experience No. 18

Despite its renovations and the passage of time, the Olympic Stadium still stand as testament to the imperial and totalitarian vision of the National Socialist era. In particular, the crude simplistic classicism of the venue’s design one of the best examples of an integrated, formalised architectural language of dictatorship in the world.
